Golmaal formula works
What is “Pandavulu Pandavulu Tummeda” about?
It is the second love story for the day. This time the family comes to save the girl from the clutches of villain because she is the one who united the entire family in first place. How they go about the whole process is what the film is all about.
Performances of Manchus
The three Manchus Mohan Babu, Vishnu and Manoj seems to enjoy every moment of their working together in the project and it showed on screen as well. There was a visible chemistry among the three and all three played well with each other providing good entertainment in the process. Special mention must be made to Manchu Manoj for his lady get up and act, it has ended up as one of the major plus for the film in the end.
What about Srivas direction?
Srivas already has the experience of directing multiple known actors in the same film. He has previously director the multistarrer Lakshyam featuring Gopichand and Jagapati Babu and later directed a film that had Ram with veteran actor Arjun. The experience shows as the director manages to give importance to all his actors in this ensemble cast film. No one is left behind and everyone gets their moment to shine with the only difference being the length of it. The director has used popular confusion comedy here as well and has succeeded with it thanks to crisp screenplay. Coming to the Golmaal issue, yes the characters and first half is the same but the second half takes its own course.
Other artists performance?
Hansika gets good role for the major part of the first half of the film. For a change she gets to be in charge of the proceedings along with showing some acting skills. She somehow manages it even though overacting a lot. Pranitha is fine as a dumb girl in the small role she has. Raveena Tondon doesn’t get much to act but she is nonetheless a welcome presence.
Varun Sandesh,Tanish and Vennela Kishore entertain as part of the gang. They have no real back story of their own but they all are equally part of the full proceedings. Brahmanandam reprises his act that he started from Dhee in this film as well. Among the number of villains Supreeth makes a mark with his lover act. Mukesh Rushi, Giribabu, Raghubabu, Telangana Shakunta etc put up predictable performances.
How is Music, Songs and other departments?
Music by Achu and Baba is noisy and add no real value to the proceedings. They only act as breaks to the fast paced proceedings. Background score by Chinni is good and it helps in elevating the overall mood when necessary. Cinematography is fine and gives the film a rich look. Editing is alright, it could have been especially better in action sequences.
Fast paced narration
What about the box office performance of the film?
The film has all it takes to be a success at the box office. It has huge doses of entertainment that is a must in today’s time. However thanks to the low buzz it has opened on a slow note. How well the film picks up will decide the range of the film. Also in the past we have a film like Dhenikaina Ready failing to show a growth despite having everything going for it. So, this one would require heavy promotion as well to sustain.
